Moving to Burson Playmate from a smaller and less powerful DAC/amp combo gave better and more dynamic sound, and I really like the looks of the unit as well in my desktop computer setup (in black it matches the style and colors of both the PC/peripherals and the K872 headphones very well). While in my day-to-day use the K872 was initially too sensitive for the amp, I could fix that using an iFi iEMatch adapter. But now I have the option to use much less sensitive headphones too without issues as well. I’m also happy about that the Playmate (I chose the Basic version to begin with) can be upgraded with new op amps as desired.
